were it to ever come to pass that this type of misanthropy be excusable because someone built something, then we might as well ...
I don't think anyone was excusing anything. Jobs is an easy example of an immigrant story which went well, at least for the migrant, and for many others. If he's a *cough* shit-weasel or not is really beside the point. Or are you saying that Steve Jobs is a good reason for countries to block Syrian refugees?
Because that would be weird.
Does Kahramah's star tattoo indicate Russian gang affiliation?
Having said that:
I know I'm jumping the gun, but I'm with
I have nothing to add to that. Definitely. Weasels are an imported pest, devouring our natural resources and - by extension - our cultural and economic points of difference. And you couldn't really get more 2016 than that.
And, while shit-weasel is a gender neutral term, it is far from species neutral. We can join in the whole my-species-is-better-than-your-species rhetoric that has dominated global politics this year, yet from a position of infallible moral safety.
Fuck off, shit-weasels! Damn, that felt good. Thanks Emma.
Well, good fucking job.
Yup. Sup? Schmuck.
And yet, I missed something. This personage who's been profiteering by misrepresenting misreported standards whilst also sitting in some position of influence over said standards: may we know its name?
You can't fix education by fixing global capitalism. The problem is user-pays education. That's fixable.
Even though the cause of it is now the mayor of Auckland.
Critical analysis as fictional narrative. I like it a lot. These clips sent me into a little search for Patricia Bartlett, who I see died late last year.
Censor ratings seem to work pretty well. Some kids really hate the scares and will be guided quite happily by the ratings.
But I also know some parents who generally disregard ratings, whose kids tend to be more happy watching freaky stuff than those with a more stringent approach.
Thanks Emma. That story and its conclusion mean a lot to me.
All economics is behavioural
Yeah, sure. Qualitative brand consultants have been teaching you to drink your beer with the label facing outwards for decades. But that's the purview of psychologists in ad land. Economists have always been like "ugh, irrational purchase behaviour. We can tolerate it through this quantum ..."
And we’re just clever monkeys, tho, our best achievement is deluding ourselves it seems.
Yeah. Behavioural economics is good for explaining how most of the people most of the time don’t know shit about what they’re buying, why, or with what.
